Stopped here for a bite to eat for dinner. Cute place where you sit around a counter and the grill is in plain view. Great butter burger and shakes. I wish I would have had room for dessert.

You certainly wouldn't want to eat it every day, but Milwaukee's iconic butter burger is a must-try here. Order it with the sweet potato fries that come crisped to perfection and a thick vanilla shake (you can't stick to your diet here anyway). Diner atmosphere...More

We were ordering things on the menu, and the response was "we don't have that". Pineapple shake -no. Flavor of the month Oreo- "we didn't crush anymore cookies so I can't make that". So..you are unable to crush cookies?? Ordered a coke, came out watery....More

Dear Friend I am very sorry you had a bad experience at Solly's. We take very much pride in trying to eliminate angry internet comments by keeping our stock up at our 80 yr old restaurant. That was not an appropriate response by Kris again...More

I go out of my way to stop and get some butter burgers. I love this place. Food is great and the staff is friendly. The burgers are so good you don't need to add anything to them. Food comes hot and delicious!

Eat here to sober up after your Sprechers Brewery tour and beer tasting. This place has great old-fashioned diner ambience and tasty classic American food. I love fresh burgers and fries for a reasonable price.
